I had the salomon malamutes, but the kid that sold me them sold me the wrong size. Imagine, 350$ for a boot that lasted about a year, and I ride less than 20 days a year! I wear a size 8-9 shoe and I bought a 9 boot and by the end of the first year they were packed way the fuck out and flexed like a shoe. I was not impressed. Picked up some 32 Lashed boots int a size 8 around february last year and they feel great. My toes are just touching the end and I'm sure they will pack you just the way I want them to.
However, while the malamutes were not packed out they were great boots. Very comfortable and rock solid, a stiff boot great for freeriding. I just wish I could have bought the right size so I could still be putting them to good use.
